Business Description: PSP Franchising, LLC is the franchisor. Pet Supplies Plus Stores offer a wide variety of pet food, pet supplies, pets (including small animals, birds, reptiles and fish, but not dogs or cats), pet grooming and bathing services, and related products and services in a clean, bright, retail environment.

Franchise Offer: The franchise offered is for the establishment and operation of retail stores offering pet food, pet supplies, pets, pet grooming and bathing services, and related products and services under the Pet Supplies Plus mark and system.

Financial Assistance: The franchisor does not offer direct or indirect financing. The franchisor will not guarantee a franchisee’s note, lease or other obligation.

Training and Assistance: Between 2 and 3 trainees must attend (at the same time) and complete the franchisor’s initial, tuition-free training program, which will be held at the franchisor’s corporate headquarters or any other location it may designate. Training lasts at least 80 hours, which may not be consecutive. To assist franchisees in operating their store, the franchisor may offer additional management and employee training programs, which it estimates will cost $1, 000 to $1, 500 a year. The franchisor may require franchisees’ attendance at these programs and/or courses.

Territory: The size of the territory will depend on the number of people and the retail environment where the territory exists. While there is no minimum size for a territory, a territory generally consists of at least 60, 000 people in urban/suburban areas and 30, 000 people in rural markets, and will be defined as either a radius around the approved location or via street boundaries.

Term of Agreement and Renewal: The length of the initial franchise term is 10 years from the date the Franchise Agreement is signed. If requirements are met, the franchisee can renew for 2 successive 5-year periods.

Obligations and Restrictions: Franchisees must devote their personal full-time attention and best efforts to the management and operation of the store, or they may delegate the day-to-day operation of their store to a manager. The Store must, at all times, be staffed with at least one individual who has successfully completed the franchisor’s initial training program. Franchisees must offer and sell all of the products which the franchisor requires, and only the products which the franchisor authorizes for the system, in the manner it prescribes.
